All MCS damper kits are built to order so expect an estimated 2-6 week build time after you order. If you chose to order online, you will be billed immediately. If you would like to call in the order (we prefer that) we process a deposit for the shocks up front, with the rest billed when they are complete.
Vorshlag Motorsports is an authorized Motion Control Suspension dealer. The MCS TT1 single adjustable damper is far from basic. This damper set features a full 18 settings of rebound control over a wide range, unique to each vehicle model's specific requirements. Dampers are more than just a number of adjustments and click count – the shape of the resulting curves is specifically engineered to give your car the most grip through the range of surface conditions and dynamic inputs your vehicle experiences.
A really nice feature of these ‘entry-level’ TT1 single adjustable non-remote dampers is that they are upgradeable to a reservoir type damper at any time. “We decided to design a modular damper system with interchangeable parts to make it possible to upgrade these ‘entry-level’ dampers to a 2-Way adjustable reservoir damper system down the road. Many customers will benefit from this and will be able to upgrade without the need of investing into a complete new damper set when upgrading their program,” according to Lex at MCS.
All the MCS dampers are built in the USA. They are fully rebuildable, serviceable and can be custom valved and upgraded any time here in the USA.
- Adjustment range of 18 different settings for Rebound control
- Monotube design front and rear
- Nitrogen pressure is adjustable, if required
- Includes standard spring hardware (springs and camber plates are not included)
- 2 Front MCS Single Adjustable (18 adj, Rebound only) Monotube Struts
- 2 Rear MCS Single Adjustable (18 adj, Rebound only) Monotube Shocks
- MCS Front Spring Perches for 60mm springs and your OEM upper strut mounts (removed when bought with camber plates)
- Unique to Vorshlag:
+ We include a 1.5mm Allen wrench tool, which is used to tighten the rebound knobs onto the adjustment shaft.
+ Also included free of charge is a pair of Vorshlag 68-75mm Spanner Wrenches for MCS front coilover strut spring perches. These are needed to loosen/tighen the 2-piece perches on each strut.
+ MCS kits ordered from Vorshlag are shipped to our facility first. This way we can test fit any optional parts (springs, camber plates, etc) to the as-built struts and shocks, and give everything a final Quality Check. Almost all other MCS dealers drop-ship these kits direct from MCS to the customer.
Included in all MCS kits with struts are these Spanner Wrenches, which Vorshlag builds for MCS perches
Most MCS dealers just "sell shocks" and leave it up to the end user to figure out all of the pieces nexessary to make them fit. Vorshlag designs, tests, manufactures, and offers all of the optional but necessary parts needed to install this MCS kit to the vehicle. This usually includes a spherical front top mount/camber plate, rear shock mounts, springs and often remote spring ride height adjusters. See below for more details.
These options will affect the final price as shown for each component added. Optional packages and parts often include discounts when purchased with shocks rather than buying the parts separately, but we also sell them ala carte.
CAMBER PLATES : We recommend Maximum Motorsports camber plates be used with MCS damper kits for this Mustang chassis. You can easily adjust camber track side as well as caster with the MM camber plates. Ordering this option includes the associated Vorshlag upper spring perches made to work with these plates, 60mm springs and MCS struts.
SPRING PACKAGES: While MCS provides you with the dampers only, Vorshlag offers the unique option for racers to pick their own front and rear spring rates at a reduced cost. These options will include new Hyperco and/or Swift springs from our tested and recommended packages. Vorshlag has spent countless hours at the track testing these spring rates, and we stand behind them for balance and performance. The spring options usually include 3 options: our GT spring package is for daily driven cars, the GTS package is for street cars that are also used in autocross and/or track events and the GTR package for race cars that predominantly see track use. If you would like to order custom rates not listed here, please give us a call. This can be arranged for typically no extra cost
All Hyperco springs are measured in inch lengths and rates are in pounds of force per inch of travel (lbs/in). Swift springs are made in Metric lengths and rates. In order to convert the inch lengths to metric lengths, multiply the length by 25.4 (divide by 25.4 to convert from metric to inches). In order to convert lbs/in to kgf/mm, you need to divide the lbs/in number by 57. In order to convert lbs/in to Newtons/mm, you need to divide the lbs/in number by 5.7.
- 2 Front 60mm Coilover Springs
- 2 Rear 2.25" Coilover Springs
- Vorshlag's GT package is 550 #/in Front / 275 #/in Rear
Vorshlag's GTS package is 650 #/in Front / 375 #/in Rear
- We stock Hyperco 7" (front) springs in 350, 450, 550 and 600 #/in rates, other rates can be special ordered.
REAR SHOCK MOUNTS : The factory SN95 Mustang shock mounts are composed of two separate rubber pieces, with the upper piece designed to accept a 10mm dia. shock shaft. These MCS rear shocks come with a 12mm upper shaft pin. You will need to upgrad the rear shock mounts, specially where the rear shocks are set up as coilovers. We recommend the Maximum Motorsports spherical rear shock mount.
The MM Rear Shock Mount will offer the best support and articulation to avoid any bind during suspension travel. Also recommend for the SN95 chassis is some form of rear shock tower brace. With all of the shock and spring loads going through the tower its best to brace that area beyond its current construction.
